Taste Testing Italian Chocolates

One of my friends went to Europe and brought back a bunch of chocolates from different countries! If you missed it, the review of different German chocolates is here.

This time, I'm reviewing different Italian chocolates, made by Perugina.

First up - the banana shaped one! This one was filled with a liquid creme that tasted exactly like a banana Runt. (You know, like these -->) We definitely don't have anything like this in America. I'm not sure how I felt about it. It was just very, very banana.

Here's the inside of the banana

The next chocolate reminded me a lot of the chewy molasses ones that come in a Russell Stover sort of mix. Quite chewy, and sweet with just an edge of some other flavor.

The next one was very much like a Fererro Rocher, except fancier. It is filled with something like a thick Nutella with hazelnut bits in it, topped with a hazelnut and coated in milk chocolate. Yum!

Just like the above, the next chocolate had a Nutella-like nougat and a hazelnut, topped with white chocolate. I really liked this one, even though I'm not a fan of white "chocolate". These chocolates are supposedly Italy's version of our Hershey's kisses - hence the shape. They're called Bacio (meaning "kiss") and they come with little fortunes or quotes about love on the inside of their wrapper.

The last two "kisses" were similar to the first two, but coated in varying degrees of dark chocolate. Also very delicious.

Honestly, I don't quite remember what the last two chocolates tasted like. Obviously, they made quite an impression. :P I do remember that they were delicious though!

And for the fun of it, here's what all the insides of the different chocolates looked like!
So do you have a favorite chocolate from Italy? What is it?
